LYRASIS is holding our first in-person Member Summit on October 17-18 in Atlanta, Georgia.

We will be focusing on three important themes:

Open Source Software – How to take control of this tremendous resource, understand the cost, resources and changes in strategy to get the most value out of this opportunity

Open Content – Why you don’t want to miss this next evolutionary step in content for your community.

Digital Services – It’s more than just digitization – it’s thinking and acting in a world of end-to-end solutions.

We’re gathering a diverse set of thinkers (and doers!) to participate in practical conversations about ideas and solutions that will shape the future of libraries, archives, museums and knowledge communities worldwide.

Today, we’re excited to announce seven featured speakers and participants who will set the stage with some talks, as well as a NEW keynote.
